The Cavanagh Bridge, Singapore

This shows the front and back of a black-and-white picture postcard with a photograph showing a busy scene around the Cavenagh Bridge. A sampan (small boat), ferrying goods, can be seen under the bridge. Meanwhile, there are bicycles and rickshaws travelling on the bridge itself. Built in 1868, it is the oldest bridge in Singapore. This postcard has a three-cent stamp and a divided back. It was mailed to Austria. Cavenagh has been spelled as "Cavanagh".
